Impact: Quad Cities Women’s Fight for the Vote
The Putnam Museum’s exhibition, “Liberated Voices, Changed Lives,” showcases how technology provided more time for women to work on the suffrage movement which led to the ratification of the 19th amendment on August 26,1920. This amendment gave some women the right to vote in the United States.
Marking 100 years since the passage of the 19th Amendment, join the Putnam Museum and exhibit sponsor, Royal Neighbors of America for a virtual gathering of women who have changed our Quad City Community. This online program will feature five minute flash talks, each with a different topic.
The Putnam thanks one of their cultural community partners, River Music Experience for their support in providing artists for this panel.
